Three antigenic variants of the H3N2 subtype of wild-type influenza A virus (representing the years 1968, 1972, and 1974) were examined for their sensitivity to interferon and for their ability to induce local respiratory tract interferon in volunteers. In addition, the time of appearance of symptoms in infected volunteers was correlated with the patterns of virus shedding and interferon production. The sensitivity to interferon and the ability to stimulate nasopharyngeal interferon were… CONTINUE READING
